Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it an A+. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this facility's better category grades was in the category of short-term care. This wound up being its second most favorable category. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. With our short-term care rating, we attempt to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
